Classic Gold Chains
Many Styles of 14k and 18k Gold Chains Dallas TX
Gold has been the established benchmark for measuring wealth and power for thousands of years. This precious metal has been shaped and crafted into various forms of jewelry, and one of the most popular is the gold chain. Our gold jewelers in Dallas carry all the most popular styles of gold chains. We can provide you with chains in 18k gold, 14k gold, and in any length. We have all the standard styles, or we can add gems of your choosing to a gold chain.
Balance is the key to selection, and neck chain designs can add versatility and functionality to your entire jewelry collection.
Box-style links are probably the most popular style of gold chain links. They look exactly like they sound: each gold link looks like a small box. This style makes for a rather thin chain and is usually used for holding pendants.
Figaro chains do not have one standard type of link, but instead alternate between three or four round links in a row, followed by a single long oval link, then back to several round links.
Omega links connect to make a flat and wide chain. This shape is conducive to slide clasps. They show off more of the gold in the chain than other types of chains, and therefore appear to be more expensive.
Bar & Bead Chains
Bar and bead chains alternate between two different kinds of links. First, there are long, rectangular links (sometimes shaped like long bars) which are connected to spherical gold beads. This style is often used in gold necklaces that combine two different colors of gold.
The marine gold chain is one type of gold chain that is worn as a necklace. The marine gold chain is characterized by a classic oval link that has a flat bar in the center. This type of gold chain can be worn by either men or women, and comes in different gauge widths and lengths.
Gold Rope Chains
The gold rope chain is a type of gold chain fashioned in much the same way as a rope. The gold chain is constructed by twisting together different strands of gold into a chain.
Gold herringbone chains are necklaces formed out of thin strips of 10k or 14k gold that bends a little in the middle. These tiny strips line-up to make a thick, strong chain. The gold herringbone chain lies flat against the wearer, because the thin strips of gold form a flat chain.
We recommend to our customers that they choose neck chains at least one or two inches longer than the size of their neck. Our Dallas jewelers can add or remove links to provide you with a custom fit. While neck chains are advertised by length, the width or diameter of a neck chain also is important to the strength of the chain.
